Pros

The food is good. The events can be fun. MBA Interns get a few special events to participate in.

Cons

Google Enterprise was not a good place to intern with. The company isn't exactly sure whether it wants to invest in enterprise because the sales capacity to close a deal is not ideal compared to advertising. The summer was pretty lonely because the Partner Programs team is all seated in London or Europe. My manager didn't seem to really know what he wanted out of the project I was working on.

Advice to Management

- Better alignment between project and company goals
- Don't put an intern on an island
- Your pitch at MBA schools isn't the greatest - refine so it doesn't sound too arrogant

    Pros

    awesome benefits, great salary, options, everyone's nice, intellectual, free food, very casual

    Cons

    Being such a world renown company, each dept is very restrictive of allowing external access. It's a bit difficult to get cross-departmental collaboration in general.

    Pros

    You get to meet an amazing network of great people; people are loyal and hard working; make lots of great new friends; work with super smart people

    Cons

    Turning into a larger, more mature organisation; some less important or smaller projects are often cancelled; harder to start up new innovative projects.

    Advice to Management

    Product Managers should be allowed to be more hands on with the infrastructure.
